Policy Sessions

Policy Sessions, or Work Sessions, are typically scheduled on Tuesdays throughout the day (occasionally on Wednesday).

Except for a regular update from the County Administrator (called “Administrator Issues/Updates” and typically held as the first Policy Session on Tuesdays), these meetings are primarily for staff to present items that require:

  1. extensive background information and study,
  2. policy direction, and/or
  3. an opportunity for in-depth discussion with staff on issues.

All policy sessions must have a quorum of the Board of County Commissioners. While these meetings are public and open to all, public comment is not heard. However, public comment is taken every Thursday at the weekly Business Meeting on any topic relevant to Clackamas County.

All policy sessions are archived via audio.
